FileMaker’s Bento 2 an easy-to-use, inexpensive, flexible database application for Mac users

Personal database that organizes your busy life“Bento 2 is an all-purpose database application that is easy to use, priced at $49 and works much like the Mac OS X database applications,” Bob LeVitus reports for The Houston Chronicle.

“Plus, Bento can easily integrate existing data — such as contacts, calendars, files or photos — with any other data. So you could, for example, integrate your Address Book contacts with your Bento 2 invoice database or include an iCal calendar in your Bento 2 event-tracking database,” LeVitus reports. “And it can integrate and synchronize data with Address Book and iCal, so you can view your data in more meaningful ways. For example, I’m able to see all of my iCal events for the next five days sorted chronologically.”

“Another big advantage is that, unlike the extremely limited printing options available in Address Book and iCal, you can design your own forms and print as much or as little data as you like with full control over fonts, item sizes, colors and layout,” LeVitus reports. “Download the free trial and check it out.”
